Sound, Lights, Drama

“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no and WOW! Wow, is the one to aim for.” And it’s the details are what can lift a design from ordinary to show stopping. This week, we bring you lights and acoustic fabrics that can help raise the oomph factor and sprinkle decadence….

In the limelight.

The Zyke series of spotlights by Fagerhult makes a splash, not only for itself but for the design elements that it highlights. Created by one of Europe’s leading lighting companies, Zyke G2 has a railed suspension design that makes it easily adjustable even after installation. It is available in black and white as pendants or wall-mounted versions as well – so you can pick whatever you please. The best part? It is completely glare-free with soft light making it ideal to blend into your design theme.

Your very own winter wonderland.

A marvellous piece by Sans Souci, this awe-inspiring pendant lamp is straight out of a fairy tale. And no, we’re not kidding. Made from hand-blown glass amalgamated with sparkling crystal colours, it reminds you of snow-covered conical trees and peaks, offering a memorable escape. Delicate and intricate with mica and stainless-steel finishes, it reflects an extraordinary craftsmanship that is hard to find. It’s yours to pick in three colours, crystal argent, crystal aurum and crystal.

A bloom that glistens. 

A chandelier that makes for a beautiful centrepiece that you can build around is rare to come across! Inspired by the white magnolia tree, this black lacquered aluminium and translucent porcelain piece looks so real that you won’t be able to take your eyes off it. With handmade flowers that symbolise eternal bonds, this poetic piece is a collaboration between Lladró and Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. It illuminates a space with a warm light that can be regulated effortlessly. It’s the perfect blend of impeccable craftsmanship and surreal design.
